Recipe Notes

  • Use whatever cheeses you like for the filling and the topping. Think Swiss, mozzarella, Fontina, Gruyere, Colby Jack, Provolone or a Mexican cheese blend.
  • The Panko adds some crunch to the top, but it's optional. Skip it if you prefer this casserole to be gluten-free (or use gluten-free Panko). 
  • If you want a broccoli rice casserole, stir some cooked rice in before baking.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Boil broccoli for 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine mushroom soup, mayonnaise, eggs, onion powder, water and shredded cheddar cheese. Mix well. Pour over broccoli and toss to combine. 
  3. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Sprinkle Panko on top, if using. Cover with the Monterey Jack cheese. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for 30 minutes.
